JDIZZY's 365 # 92: Fernando

Fernando - Abba (1975)

If ever a group was "critic-proof", it would be these Swedes. Only Nickelback has been as hated by the intelligentsia and as loved by the public. However, Abba backs up their popular praise with actual talent. And the critics have come around, as they always tend to do when they get it wrong. The ballad love continues today with this Spanish tinged story song. Though they would be more adventurous, lovely, and perfect, they would never combine all three attributes as seamlessly as they do hear. If only they could reunite for a single concert...what a pop lover's dream that would be!
